When I’m Sixty-Four

Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I’m sixty-four?

Need me?

Possibly.

Feed me?

Perhaps.

Medicate me?

Probably not.

They called Sarah Palin a liar because she spoke of death panels, in fact, the death panels topic was labeled “The Lie of the Year” by PolitiFacts in 2009.

Snopes.com called it a lie as well, saying that “no provision of the ‘Obamacare’ health care legislation mandates or authorizes the creation of ‘ethics panels’ to determine which patients should or should not receive various medical treatments, base don the age or other criteria.”

Yet, here we are, the election is over, the damage done, and a death panel by any other name, is a death panel.

Death panels are here.

Obama lied.

Then again, that’s the rule, not the exception.

One thought on “When I’m Sixty-Four

  1. PolitiFacts and Snopes will issue formal apologies to Palin shortly. Or as soon as the NYT formally apologizes to Cubans for Herbert Matthews.
